As soon as I saw both of these sets of clips in Bureau Direct’s Stationery Wednesday newsletter a couple of weeks ago, I knew I had to choose them for my June haul. Both are Japanese, and both are very useful.
How cute are these?! And very functional too. The OHTO Smile Slide Clippers are £6.95 for 10 if you choose the small ones (which I did), or for 5 if you choose the big ones.
Even the small ones hold quite a few sheets of paper (25 apparently), and held 4 pieces of card together here, with plenty of room to spare:
Now for something more sophisticated…
These Mark’s Inc Travelife turn clips (I would call them bulldog clips…) comes in packs of 10, with 2 sizes, for £6.95.
They’re actually sold out at the moment… Which proves they’re a popular choice. I can imagine they’d be useful for all kind of stuff; holding stuff together, keeping containers shut. I think they’d look great displaying postcards and prints on the wall; just hook them over a nail.
As someone with an extremely messy desk at the moment, and lots of piles of papers, I know exactly how I’m going to put both of these set to good use. Excuse me while I go get organised!
